Curious about Disqus Ads? We've answered the most common questions below to help you get started.

How do I enable Ads?

After signing up for Disqus, publishers will have the opportunity to apply for Ads by running ads for a full week and then reaching out to us as described here.

What does 'below-the-fold' mean?

'Below-the-fold' is the area of a webpage that is only visible after a reader scrolls down the page.

What ad types will I see on my site?

You're in control of what ad types appear on your site. Quality native content ads (Sponsored Story and Sponsored Links) are just a click away at Disqus Admin > Revenue > Settings.

How do I know how much I'm earning?

An earnings report is available in the Disqus Admin > Revenue > Settings.

How do I know when I'll be paid?

Your upcoming payments and unpaid earnings are available in the Disqus admin panel Revenue > Analytics > Payments.

For more important payment details, please visit: Receiving payments from Disqus

Where are the settings for Disqus Ads?

Ads settings are in the Disqus Admin > Revenue > Settings and can only be accessed by the forum founder and moderators of the forum who have "can change settings" permissions. For more information on Disqus Ads settings, please visit: Updating Your Advertising Settings.

How do Disqus ads impact page load time?

Page load time isn't impacted by ads. Disqus is non-blocking and waits to load both the discussion and the ads until all other page elements have loaded.

More information is available here: Does Disqus impact page load time?

What if I want to remove Ads?

If you'd like to remove Disqus Ads from your integration, you may purchase and ads-free subscription from your Subscription and Billing page. More information on Disqus ads-free subscriptions may be found here.
